♥ ♥ ♥ today . . . (and every day) . . . i am so very thankful for the love of my life!
. . . it’s been a journey for us to be here, where we are today. a journey that began decades ago. a journey then we had no idea was even a reality. a journey that was once seemingly only a glimmering dream.
but today . . . today, that dream is a reality! what a delight it was to share our story. our beautiful love story… a story that could have been written by the hand of God. (originally posted on Studio JRU)
and each day. . . each day i am so thankful.
each day i thank God as i wake in the morning, as i leave our home, when i return to our home, when i put my head on the pillow at night . . . i think on our love and i thank God for His sending healing and restoration of my hurts, of my scars, of my heart to me through you. such important times in my day . . . and when passing each of these moments i touch, i whisper my thankfulness for you in my life, in our lives.
each day when i wrap my arms around you, when we hold each other’s eyes. . . i am thankful. it’s those time i know what it is like to have my Father’s arms wrapped around me. i am thankful that we are one flesh. i am thankful that you love me as you love Him.
each day, all during the day, i look for ways, i am reminded of ways that you care for me. i am thankful . . .
for the early morning first cup of steaming coffee and hot breakfast and sharing the Word (the best way to start the day!)
for love notes left randomly and hot chai lattes
for filling up my car with gas when i’m so close to E
for hanging up your towels
for teaching me to be financially sound
for keeping the fridge and pantry stocked
for your arms that hold me safe at the end of the day
for making my heart believe again, and for still making it skip a beat like it did decades ago! oh my list can go on and on!
but most of all, i am thankful that you love God more than me!
love is more than a four-letter word. Love is Him in the center of Us.
God gave me you (happy ♥ day!)
